Employer Profile - CRESIB
The Barcelona Centre for International Health Research CRESIB

CRESIB is a research centre focused on global health and developed by a number of leading academic and biomedical research institutions based in Barcelona: Universitat de Barcelona, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS). Working together with the Autonomous Government of Catalonia, CRESIB seeks to meet the new international health challenges of the 21st century.

CRESIB was incorporated as a private foundation in July 2006, within the framework of the Catalan Government’s Research Centres Programme, which in recent years has pursued a policy that focuses on the creation and development of outstanding research centres in specific scientific-technical areas and fields, with particular emphasis on biomedical research and the health sciences.

CRESIB carries out activities aimed at generating knowledge and development as well as improving health impacts, these are based in four main areas: Research, Education, Medical Assistance and International Cooperation.

CRESIB’s research activity is developed within the framework of four research programmes that cover a number of areas related to international health:

A significant part of the research conducted within the framework of the Poverty-related diseases programme is carried out in cooperation with the Centro de Investigação em Saúde de Manhiça (CISM, Mozambique, the collaborating centre with which CRESIB has the closest and most enduring relationship. The centre was created in 1996 based on bilateral cooperation between the government of Mozambique, represented by the Ministry of Health and Eduardo Mondlane University, and the government of Spain, represented by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for the Development (AECID) and Fundació Clínic per la Recerca Biomèdica (FCRB,
One of CRESIB’s aims is to transfer the results of basic research to clinical practice and the health policies of the most disadvantaged countries, thereby helping to improve their economic and health development. To pursue this aim the centre promotes multidisciplinary research and collaboration with health institutions in developing countries. CRESIB is also engaged in long-term collaborations with other international centres, participating in several consortiums to carry out research projects. Particularly noteworthy projects are the Malaria P. vivax Consortium, the Intermittent Preventive Treatment in infants Consortium (IPTi, through FCRB), and the Malaria Age of Exposure Consortium (AgeMal, through IDIBAPS).

Finally, training of health personnel, doctors and researchers is another cornerstone of CRESIB that aims to become a reference centre and facilitator for international health training. CRESIB develops its own training programmes and collaborates with a wide range of institutions in order to promote knowledge of international health issues and to improve the training of health professionals to manage imported and tropical diseases. CRESIB also trains highly qualified investigators in specific areas related to international health (mainly through university masters programs, PhDs and continued training) and technical, medical and scientific personnel from the poorest countries, developing also programmes and clinical internships for some of these students.

CRESIB aims to contribute to the education of the next generation of medical doctors and researchers of endemic areas, so they can look for new ways of tackling the big global Health problems, focusing on the developing countries.
